For Quebec

Equipment leaving Fairview Cove today appeared to be mostly for Quebec, and was being hauled by the two most popular truck brands in Quebec, namely Kenworth and International.
1. Locations de camions Eureka (Eureka Truck Rentals) Kenworth had this Komatsu dozer on board- a model 85PX, apparently imported in used condition from Europe.

 2. A pair of Internationals from Quebec stop for a conversation. The green one had an empty flatdeck, so he may have unloaded something for export.

3. A Case IH Magnum 290 and a New Holland T7.210 imported for Quebec. Both Case and New Holland are owned by CNH a subsidiary of Fiat Industrial SpA (which was spun off as a separate company from Fiat SpA the car company). Despite the same owner, the two brands compete head to head.
4. New Holland was purchased by Fordson in 1986, then Fiat in 1991, then joined by Case IH in 1999. Case and International Harvester joined in 1985, and have no longer have any connection with Navistar International.

Case IH has an excellent web site at: www.case.com. Sorry that should be:www.caseih.com
New Holland has an even better web site at: www.newholland.com
You have to search through them very carefully to find any connection between the two, except for the odd reference to CNH. However both companies have interesting histories that are outlined on their sites.
